Import From Tokyo Model Company

Hi everyone. I have a questions regarding importing gear from Tokyo Model Company ( Has anyone ever ordered gear into Canada from them before? I have heard they are reliable, but it’s always good to see other opinions.
I emailed them, but when they replied all they said was “Sorry sir we can't ship the air soft gun for you, because the Canada custom doesn't accept the air soft gun import to Canada”. Even though I specifically asked about gear, not guns.

So here are my specific questions I have.
- Will the products for sure make it to where I live, in Calgary Canada.
- Any estimations on how much the shipping will cost?

Here is the list of products I plan to purchase with the quantities next to them
- J-Tech Tactical Model-A Vest (WC) (Quantity of 1)
- Mil Force MK-23 Holster (Thigh Type) (Quantity of 2)
- G&P 3 Point QD Sling (BK) (Quantity of 1)
- KSC 0.2g BB (Quantity of 10)
- Tokyo Marui BB Loader (Quantity of 1)

Will all of the products listed above get through Canadian Customs? I have heard getting gear though customs is no problem, but I want to be sure.

What shipping method is best for my location? I was recommended by a friend to use EMS and I was just wondering if that’s my best option.

I hope this isn’t too much of an inconvenience for anyone to answer; I just want to be sure everything will turn out fine.

Thanks you for your time

P.S. If anyone has any Canadian retailers that sell the same products for a reasonable price, please recommend them to me, thanks.
